Parents today are looking for toys that are safe, non-toxic, sustainably produced and ethically made. They want natural toys that are imaginative, high quality, classic and simple.

Sarah Baldwin, M.S.Ed., early childhood educator, author of Nurturing Children and Families and owner of Bella Luna Toys - an online retailer of educational toys, art supplies and crafts - has drawn up her guide for eco-friendly and natural holiday gifts and stocking stuffers for kids.

Sarah's recommendations speak to the importance of natural, imaginative toys and play that can help children reach their full potential, and she helps guide the process of choosing the right toys for kids to bring out their curiosity and develop their communications skills.

In her role as owner of Bella Luna Toys, Sarah is seeing a trend of disillusioned parents who are no longer sold on the toys and apps that are deemed educational, and instead are looking for toys and games that remind them of their own childhood. She says: "Parents today are looking for toys that are safe, non-toxic, sustainably produced and ethically made. They want natural toys that are imaginative, high quality, classic and simple."
